Keychains are a fun and quick project that take very little yarn and supplies to make. They are so easy that you won’t want to stop making them! These are a great thing to make and take to markets to sell as they are something that everyone can afford. Enjoy this assortment of FREE Crochet Keychain Ideas.
Some (but not all) of theses keychain patterns even have video tutorials for those that are visual learners!
Remember, you can take most smaller amigurumi patterns and turn them into a keychain by simply adding a keyring. A few of these are not specifically keychains but can super easily be modified into one.
One of the best things about these pattern is that instead of adding a keyring, you could add a clip and kids could use them to clip to their backpacks or anything else they might want to.
What’s the Best Yarn to Use For Crochet Keychains?
Really, there are lots of different yarns that work well when it comes to crocheting keychains. Some people will prefer using a dk weight yarn for their keychains while other will prefer a worsted weight.
I typically use a worsted weight yarn because I always have that on hand in a bunch of different colors. Keep in mind that the piece will turn out a little bigger this way, but you can always try to go down in hook size.
But, most any lightweight yarn like dk or worsted-weight yarn that’s either cotton or acrylic would work just fine.
